Men’s wilderness immersion
DATES COMING SOON
Are you prepared for the unknown?
The modern man IS CONSUMED in a rapidly moving world.
A world that seems only to be moving faster.
The blur of constantly changing technologies and society making it harder than ever to feel grounded.
Most men are walking around in a social vertigo, living their lives in a perpetual state of distraction.
No wonder we struggle to feel a sense of real purpose.
How do we find the confidence and courage to take risks that will connect us
with a meaningful life as vital as the need to breathe amidst all the chaos?
Is your daily life empowering and building confidence within you?
Are your life goals reflected in everything you spend your time on? Or are the meaningful activities that would bring you greater fulfillment last on the list?
Do you move through your day with a connective flow to everyone and everything you do? Or do you feel apathetic or disconnected from the people in your life?
Does your gut tell you that there is more depth to life than your current experience allows for?
It’s time to slow down to the speed of nature.
What if you could step into a world that still moves at the pace that it did when your ancestors walked it?
What if you could immerse yourself in a wild place where the knowledge and skills to be competent and merge with purposeful living were still the same knowledge and skills necessary for over hundreds of thousands of years?
Why do we feel so disconnected from nature when everything we are and utilize is nature?
WHO ARE YOU BECOMING?
THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
THE DOMESTICATED MAN
- Has lost his connection with his ancestry.
- Relies on technology to understand the world around him.
- Doesn’t consider where things really come from.
- Aspires to identify with the “self-made man”.
THE WILD MAN
- Understands where he came from.
- Cultivates an intimate relationship with the natural world.
- Understands the interconnectedness of all things.
- Understands the power of “hunting in packs.”

NATURE IS OUR GREATEST TEACHER
When did you last sleep out under the stars…
Drink water from a forest stream?
Follow the tracks of an animal to its home?
Sit in silence in the middle of nowhere while the sun set?
How to make fire from harvesting a few materials off the land.
Forage for a meal from the plants and trees in the wilderness.
Make an overnight shelter while migrating to your summer home, (yes! our ancestors had summer homes!)
Who your ancestors are, and the ways they lived…
Your connection to your truest self, the earth, and nature…
Why we celebrate, create rituals, and develop spirituality…
WE ARE THE ELEMENTS
The four elements are not only found in literally everything we create and use, they are also found in spiritual ideologies from virtually every culture through time and across the planet.
The ground. The manifest world. It’s what we make things out of. We define ourselves by defining our surroundings.
Sustenance, structure, reality, body.
Its fluid and hydrating power allows for movement. It holds and moves life across the land and through our bodies.
Purification, subconscious, movement, soul.
The transformer. It turns ore into steel, food into glucose. Fire synergizes the other elements into emergent substances.
Truth, light, transformation, spirit
It’s all around us all the time yet we can’t see it. Breath is life, it is the spirit that drives of all of our world-bound actions.
Faith, inspiration, guidance, mind.

Restore your connection with the elements.
And remember what you’re truly made of.
You can go through life on earth disconnected from nature, or a part of it.
